It’s bizarre to me that last year at almost this exact time, I was pouring my heart out in a post called “The Day I Most Miss Being in Boston.” It was a love letter to my hometown, and since I was feeling particularly homesick, I really wished I could have teleported myself to the Boston Marathon starting line, to recreate the memories I’d had as a child.
